Qāf. By the Glorious Qur’ān!
Nay, they are amazed that there has come to them a warner from among themselves. Thus, those who lack Faith (in Allâh) said: "This is very bizarre thing.
What! When we die and become dust, (shall we be raised up again)? That is far off return.”
We know perfectly well what the earth diminishes of them. We have a book that keeps all the records.
Nay, they gave no credence to the Truth (-this ‘Qur’ān’-) when it has come to them. Thus, they are in state of perplexity.
Have they not looked at the heavens above them (and see) how We have constructed and adorned it? There are no rifts in it.
As for the earth, We spread it out, set thereon mountains standing firm and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth in pairs.
This is an enlightenment and a Reminder (or) ‘Revealer of the Truth’ for every devoted worshiper (of the Most High God), who turns (unto Him in repentance).
We send down blessed water from the sky, then We cause to grow thereby gardens, grain of crops
And lofty palm trees with clustered fruit,
A sustenance for the servants. And We give life thereby to a dead land. This is how the resurrection will be!.
The folk of ‘Noah’ refused to admit the Truth before them, (the Pagan Arabs), and so did the dwellers of ‘Ar-Rass’, (the tribe of) ‘Thamūd’,
(The tribe of) ‘Ād’, ‘Pharaoh’, the brethren of ‘Lot’,
The companions of the Thicket and the people of Tubba'. All of them denied the messengers (of Allâh). Thus My threat was justly fulfilled.
Were We then worn out by (the task of) the first creation? Nay, they are in confusion over a new creation.
Indeed We created man. And We know very well what his Inner Self whispers into him. We are closer to him than his jugular vein.
When the two recording angels receive, sitting on the right and on the left,
Not a word does he utter but there is by him a keeper at hand.
The agony of death comes in truth. That is what you have been avoiding.
The trumpet will be blown. That will be the day of threatening.
Every Human Self will come forth along with a driver and a witness.
Indeed, you were unaware of this. We have removed your veil, thus, your sight, this day, is sharp.
His companion will say: "This is what I have made ready of his record."
Throw into ‘Gehenna’ every obstinate who lacks faith in Allâh. .
(He was) hinderer of good, transgressor, wasting life in doubts .
He used to set up another god with Allâh. Thus, throw him in the severe punishment!
His companion will say: “Our Lord, I caused him not to transgress but he was far astray."
Allâh will say: “Quarrel not in My presence since I gave you warning beforehand.
The Sentence that comes from Me can't be changed, and I am not iniquitous toward the servants."
The day will come when We say to ‘Gehenna’: "Are you filled?" It will Ask: "Are there any more?"
‘Al-Jannah’ will be brought near to the ‘Pious’ , not far off.
This is what you are promised for every one who turns unto Allâh in repentance, and keeps His Limits,
Who shows honor and reverence for the Most Beneficent (God) in secret and comes (to Him) with faithful heart.
( It will be said unto him): “Enter ‘Al- Jannah’ in Peace! This is the day of immortality”.
They will have therein whatever they desire, and We have even more.
How many generations We destroyed before them, (the Pagan Arabs), who were more powerful than them. (When Our divine retribution came), they went about in the lands. Was there any place of escape?!
Indeed, in this is a remembrance for the one who has (an active) heart and gives ear while his mind is completely attentive (to the sermons).
We created the heavens and earth, and all that is between them in six days without being touched by fatigue.
Therefore, bear then with patience whatever they say, and glorify the praises of your Lord and declare His infinite glory before sunrise and sunset.
During the night, celebrate His infinite glory, and after prostration.
Listen on the day when the caller will call from a nearby place,
On the day, when they will hear the (Inevitable) Blast in truth. That will be the ‘Day of Resurrection’.
Verily it is We who give life and cause death, and to Us is the definitive course.
On the day when the earth will split asunder, they will rush out of their graves. That is a gathering easy to Us.
We know perfectly well what they say, and you, (O' ‘Muhammad’), are not a tyrant over them. Therefore, remind him by means of the ‘Qur’ān’ who pays attention to My threat.
